Keeping Track of Compliance Regulations to Avoid Disasters

Imagine a world where all IT systems run just as they were once configured, and nothing bad happens to them – or nothing at all, for that matter. There is nobody who comes into your office demanding all kinds of reports to be pulled out immediately with all the changes in all the systems ready for an analysis. Imagine a world without compliance.

But wait! If there’s no inspector and no authority forcing you to keep an eye on business continuity disrupting mishaps, how will you know about stolen data, a hacked user account or a PR specialist having tried to access accounting folders? It’s probably a good thing to stay compliant and avoid violating regulations – for your own safety as well as for keeping you from paying violation fees or even ending up in jail.
